Workshop - Suminagashi paper marbling
Suminagashi marbling on paper
Thursday, July 18 from 6-8 p.m. | cost is $40
all supplies are provided | limited to 10 participants
Suminagashi is the ancient Japanese art of paper marbling and translates to "spilled ink" or "ink-floating". Taught by Cinamon Airhart, the technique involves applying ink to the surface of still water. By alternating ink colors, concentric rings are formed in the water which can then be gently moved around to create abstract marbled designs. The effect of Suminagashi is quite beautiful, and the practice can be very meditative and relaxing.
In this workshop, participants will create a grouping of art prints and greeting cards. We will practice both dipping and dropping ink onto the water's surface and will explore different ways to make the ink flow. No artistic experience is necessary - this workshop is very laid back, so the goal is to relax and have fun!
The $40 fee includes all materials and two hours of instruction. (You are welcome to bring a beverage and snack of your choice! Also, please note: We will provide aprons but do suggest that you wear clothing appropriate for art-making.)
The workshop is limited to 10 participants. Pre-registration and payment are required by July 16. This workshop is appropriate for children 8 years and older (kids must be accompanied by an adult even if the adult is not participating). Purchase tickets online or in-store.
Next workshop date TBD.
